Trying to repair this MacBook Air
This is the original MacBook Air. When it boots up it goes to install lion from Internet recovery. I log into the wifi, and hit continue. And with logging on I can see there is an error connecting to the App Store. I tired using my IMac to make a USB install stick from Lion I purchased from Apple. When I try to use that it has a circle with a line thru it. I have tried all the operating OS LIKE Yosemite and El Capitan but I get the same thing.
It has the original drive a 80gb Zif drive and OWC offers a solid state for 200$. Ifixit is sold out and doesn't know when they will get anymore.
Any help I would appreciate it.
I didn't do a very good job explaining the problem. When it boots it boots to recovery. So I called apple they thought maybe the wifi wasn't acting correctly so I sent away for the usb to ethernet part. Tried it today and it still hangs up. I did copy the error.
I would really like to fix this computer for my friends daughter.
They also may of thought the firmware may be corrupt.
